Dreampop kings She Sir return with their long-awaited sophomore album Rival Island. She Sir made a splash in the early 2000's crafting powerful shoegaze masterpieces and winning over critics and fans alike. And now after a bygone era of gazing at shoes, She Sir brings us their strongest album which turns that inspective gaze inward...

The full-length Rival Island LP sees the band covering their darkest and most thrilling territory yet, exploring veiled themes of mirrors, dualism, and aging. Surpassing their early shoegaze roots, She Sir reaches ambitious new heights as they embrace chorused guitar textures, Fleetwood Mac's soulful rhythm and bass, and inspired Pet Sounds-esque arrangements. Expect labyrinthine phrasing, driving rhythms, and plenty of lush reverberated guitar washes. The record was produced by Louie Lino (Nada Surf, The New Pornographers, Doug Gillard) and mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, The National).

"Top 25 of 2000's - Honorable Mention: 'Who Can't Say Yes.'" - The San Francisco Appeal

"She Sir’s Who Can’t Say Yes is seminal in the underground shoegaze scene as a whole." - Coppell Student Media

She Sir's seminal 2006 debut Who Can't Say Yes EP was named one of the "Best of the 2000's" decade (The San Francisco Appeal) and earned the distinction of being included in Japan's definitive Shoegazer Disc Guide book alongside My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Ringo Deathstarr, and more. Songs like "It's My Way Of Staying Connected" and "I Love You, Blowtorch Eyes" have etched themselves into the psyches of shoegaze fans around the world.

With the arrival of this new vinyl reissue 11 years after its initial release, Who Can't Say Yes remains as popular and relevant as ever. A new generation of fans will discover She Sir's masterful EP for the first time as older fans who've followed the band for years will be treated to a new unique listening experience. The release was entirely remixed by Louie Lino (Nada Surf, The New Pornographers, Doug Gillard) from the original tape reels and remastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, The National). This reissue also includes an added bonus track: a previously-unreleased alternate version of the song "I Love You, Blowtorch Eyes" originally recorded in 2005.

Motivated by the appetite for reinvention, She Sir have established a sound that is both modernistic and illuminating, yet faithful to the spirit of decades past. Surpassing their early shoegaze roots, they are taking their songwriting to ambitious new heights throughout the album. Like their partially imagined song titles, She Sir blur the lines of the familiar to create an impressionistic, contemporary sound, that transcends any direct comparisons to other groups present or past.


YOU COULD BE TIGER

[S/R] Digital-only Single 2012

01 You Could Be Tiger

AVAILABLE DIGITALLY on: iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, CDBaby + many other online retailers

"She Sir is devoted to the cult of the song, fervently, almost spiritually, calibrating and exploring tones, drum patterns and complex academic harmonies in order to perfectly realize their psychedelic mini-suites. 'You Could Be Tiger' further refines the band's ability to mix its established avant tendencies (dream-pop textures, complicated time signatures and unique alternate tunings) with '60s-inspired psych-pop songwriting." - Clicky Clicky Music

"アメリカはオースティン出身のシューゲイザー/ドリームポップ/ギター・ロック・バンド。メンバーは、Russell Karloff、M. Grusha、Jeremy Cantrellを中心とし、ライヴではフルバンドにて迫力のパフォーマンスを見せる。2006年にリリースされ、日本ではディスクユニオンで若干数流通された”Who Can’t Say Yes”では、元くるりのドラマー、Christopher McGuireも参加したことで話題になった。そのサウンドは昨今のニューゲイザーやシュートロニカとは異なり、どちらかというと、1990年代のクリエイション・レーベルのサウンドを彷彿とさせる、オーソドックスなスタイルをブラン・ニューな感性でかき鳴らしたもので、評価が高い。2010年2月には限定7インチ”Yens”をリリースし、1960年代ソフトロック〜サイケデリック・ロックの感性を、そもそも持っていたテイストに見事に融和させたサウンドで人々を驚かせた。現在、もっとも成長と今後の人気を約束されているバンドのひとつである。" - Happy Prince Records


YENS

[S/R] 7" Vinyl EP 2010

01 Ginger
02 Lemongrass
03 Golden Ways
04 Boystown



AVAILABLE on 7" LIMITED-EDITION VINYL (no jacket) at: Tonevendor, Disk Union (Japan) + many other retailers

AVAILABLE DIGITALLY on: Indiecater Records (with exclusive digital art), Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, CDBaby + many other online retailers

"The big surprise on 'Yens,' ...is just how expansive it sounds for a four-song collection whose tunes never cross the three-minute mark. In a paltry eight-and-a-half minutes, it ticks off every possible box of desirable influences: the sun-dappled boy-girl vocal interplay of Belle and Sebastian, the warmth and production sheen of the Beach Boys circa 'Pet Sounds,' and the delicate arrangements of Beach House. Centerpiece track 'Lemongrass' serves as a She Sir manifesto: thoughtful, thundering-yet-unassuming, an at-first cacophonous tune which yields beauty through listener focus, like a musical Magic Eye puzzle." - Austin-American Statesman / Austin360

"Top 25 of 2000's - Honorable Mention: 'Who Can't Say Yes.'" - The San Francisco Appeal

"She Sir’s Who Can’t Say Yes is seminal in the underground shoegaze scene as a whole." - Coppell Student Media

She Sir's 2006 debut, Who Can't Say Yes, introduced fans to a unique brand of powerful shoegaze-inspired compositions: the album climbing up well within CMJ's top 100 upon its release. The band experiments with alternate guitar tunings, unorthodox technique, unique phrasing, modal harmonies, cagey rhythms and generally obsesses over the aesthetics of songwriting. Taking cues from their classical and contemporary music composition background, and combining with their love of modern guitar-sound pioneers, She Sir's Who Can't Say Yes is nothing short of a brilliant recipe for success.
